Description

Alpaca fibre is warmer than sheep wool and does not itch. It is as soft as cashmere and will keep you warm. Indeed, alpaca-fibre products “breathe” and keep humidity away from the body, which makes them very comfortable.

** Since this product comes from the transformation of our own animals and is artisanal and semi-artisanal, quantities are limited **

Wash cold by hand with mild soap and dry flat. Do not twist, put in the dryer nor near a heat source.

We suggest two possibilities for washing:
  • Fill a container with warm/cold water. Add Eucalan*. Soak for 15 minutes, do not agitate. Press gently by hand to remove excess water. Do not twist nor rinse!
  • Other mild soap: follow the same instructions as with Eucalan, but rinse with cold water.

*Eucalan: Rinse-free soap enriched with lanolin and lavender oil (a natural mothproof product), or natural and unscented. Cleans deeply and enhances the natural beauty of silk, alpaca fleece and mohair, or any other delicate washable article. Available in store. Biodegradable and non-toxic.
